Default rear bumper of 1500 2009 Lone star crew cab with Hemi

Hi,

There's a 2" dent in my chrome rear bumper. I don't know if something hit me or another driver who regularly drives the vehicle hit something. The dent is on the corner at the bottom. I can post a picture if it helps. It's the hemi bumper (dual exhaust outlets, no park distance, chrome) . I had a few questions:

1. are chrome bumpers repairable? I guess every case is different, just looking for experiences. Again, I can post if there's traction on this. I live in Austin, if anyone knows of a place in particular

2. if it's not repairable and needs to be replaced, where's the best place to obtain a bumper. I'd be okay with a reconditioned bumper.

3. if I get a new bumper, could I get a bumper with Park distance control sensors holes and add PDC to the truck? If so, how involved is that (I added an aftermarket radio and backup camera so I'm okay with that type of work)? Is the truck pre-wired for PDC and/or are the electronics for PDC already in the vehicle?

4. If I get a bumper with PDC sensor holes and an OEM style solution isn't possible or realistic due to costs, modifications, etc... could I still get the PDC-ready bumper and go with an aftermarket solution? If so, what are some recommendations?

Thanks!

I can answer number one. Yes, it can be hammered out and re-chromed.

These guys are in your neighborhood. Not sure if they hammer out dents tho..

Depending on what it will cost to get the stock bumper repaired rockauto.com sells replacement bumpers. You can get them with park assist holes. I bought one w/out park assist w/dual exhaust cutouts to change over from a single exhaust. Paid about 350 shipped.
